Lyndsey Thomas, founder of new blog and travel club Girl About Travel, tells Abra Dunsby about the brand’s offering and teaming up with the trade
Launching a travel-related business during a global pandemic might sound risky but Lyndsey Thomas, founder of the new Girl About Travel blog and its Travel Club, which allows members to book holidays through a travel agent, has proved that with the right product and industry knowledge it can be done.
Thomas grew Girl About Travel’s content and audience from another blog, Girl About Yorkshire, which she launched four years ago.
She decided to create Girl About Travel and its Travel Club to help "women to join a like-minded community of others who love to travel and who don’t want to go on a package holiday with their family”.
The Travel Club, which follows a membership model and was launched in September, offers its members access to insight from travel industry experts, bespoke itineraries and the chance to book holidays through the site’s resident travel agent, Kate Holroyd of Strawberry Holidays, who waives her booking fee for members.
